Everton are said to be “unhappy” that a compensation claim made by Leicester City will be heard by the same commission that docked them 10 Premier League points.

Leicester, Leeds and Burnley have been told they have a valid case for compensation because they were relegated during the period in which Everton were found to have broken the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules.

The same three-man commission panel that handed Everton their points deduction will hear compensation claims by Leicester and the other two clubs. Everton are reportedly “querying why” this will be the case.

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who also note that the commission’s chair, David Phillips KC, acted for Leeds when they appealed a 15-point deduction back in 2007.

In finding Everton guilty of breaking profit and sustainability rules, Phillips said: “I am satisfied that the applicant clubs have potential claims for compensation.”

City, Leeds and Burnley all have 28 days from the initial decision (last Friday, November 17) to formally lodge their claims. If they do so, it will then be heard by the independent commission.

Phillips will be joined on the commission panel by judge Alan Greenwood and former West Ham finance director Nick Igoe.
